Today's weather trivia: 11 December
1927: A Winnipeg, MB, man was found dead, with a revolver in each frozen
hand, in the city's Elmwood Cemetery, near the grave of his wife. The
revolvers were so tightly grasped they could not be removed until his body
reached the morgue. Temperatures over the past week had been -33°C.
Following serious domestic trouble, officials had taken his 6 children from
him, prompting his suicide.
